    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I had Xeolada and Oxaliplatin for my first two rounds of chemo. After a scan found tumors had grown and more of them. I was going to start different chemo today but am having coughing so needed xray first. I also need another blood transfusion. This will be my third. Then we will see whether to start next kind of chemo. In between time I am seeing naturopathic dr for immune support and other treatments to fight the cancer. He has encouraged us to fight from all sides possible. We are looking into medical marijuana for appetite and pain. I have no desire to eat and realize now I am in pain not just sore from now energy.
